interviews with michelle obama and ann romney. the first lady shared her debate anxiety with our jessica yellin. >> i get so nervous at these debates and you know, i'm like one of those parents watching their kid on the balance beam. just standing there just trying not to, you know, have any expression at all. >> ann romney revealed to our gloria borger that she helped reassure her husband during past debates. >> and almost after every answer that he gives, he'll find me in the audience to see, was that good? was that okay? >> we're going to have much more on those interviews with michelle and ann as we count down to the debate. we're mobilizing the full resources of cnn for our coverage tonight. let's bring in and erson cooper. >> it's going to be an exciting night and during the debate, we are going to clock the candidates to see how much time they get to talk overall about each issue and we'll get immediate reaction to what president obama and governor romney are are saying from a focus group of undecided colorado voters. their responses will look like that on screen. you see them at
there on the campaign trail? >> reporter: you know, i asked her about ann romney's claim when ann romney pressed back about her own husband's critics and ann romney said campaigning is hard. i said does she share that sentiment. here was mrs. obama's response. >> ann romney recently said about the critics of her husband -- to her husband's critics that running for president is hard. do you sympathize with that? >> you know, the campaign experience is unique for everyone. everyone comes to this and experiences it differently. for me i really enjoy campaigning. i think barack and i we both get energy from it because when you live in washington, sometimes you get isolated from the rest of the country. and this is a time when we get out and we can remember just how decent people are. i come across people i don't care what political party they come from, they are hopeful. they're happy to see you. they're willing to listen. and it's good to be reminded of that. when you get out on the campaign trail. so i get energy from it. and i always have. and i've always said that. it's, you know, i never thought, yo

like ohio. but they think this is a changing moment. i read one interview anecdotally about ann romney saying the first thing mitt romney does when he gets in these debate is he walks on stage, he puts the watch on the podium. he where is on the piece of paper, dad, because of his dad george romney also ran for president. then he finds ann romney in the crowd. and i think that that -- we'll be watching for that. how governor romney handles the first minutes of his persona tonight will make a big statement about how this whole thing goes. bill: thank you, bret, we'll see you later tonight. bret baier live in denver. 8:55 eastern. you know it's important now. jamie: important enough to stay up. bill: full reaction tomorrow morning right here. jamie: republicans are now seizing on a comment by joe biden on middle class americans. the vice president was trying to fire up a crowd in the swing state of north carolina and many critics say he ended up committing his latest gaffe. you watch and decide. this is deadly earnest, man. how they can justify, how they can justify raising taxes on the
romney and ann romney talking about their marriage as one of the best moments as well. >> bill: i'm going to make a prediction to henry and to cammeron. ready for my prediction? >> romney will wish the couple happy anniversary. one of the first thing he does. >> no question about it. couple family things about rom mr. romney you should note too. one thing he does is immediately makes contact with his wife in the audience when he takes the podium. next thing he does he writes the letters dad dad for his father on the note pad. what you say can matter. there is awful lot of talk how romney has never forgotten that his father's presidential campaign was derailed by misstatement being brain washed by the vietnam war. that left a mark. he is super cautious about what he says. all the rehearsing and all of that sever o since of calm all his aides have described. we that ride the plane have seen. not about the consultants and super pacs and background noise that comes with the presidential campaign. it's now on his soldiers. he either has to perform orer he won't. >> bill: both of these guys thi
the expectations game that he's got to fulfill, and we'll see how he does. >> anne, this praise of mitt romney about an anecdote of being abandoned on a boat his hi grandkids. take a look and take a listen. >> i said, who's going to grab the rope? and i looked up, and there was mitt romney. so he pull ed me in, tied up th boat for me, he rescued me just as he's going to rescue this great country. >> is it part of the governor's problem that even his friends can't make him seem like a likable guy, who would appeal to the average american. someone without a boat, without a lake house? >> well, yeah. >> how does he endear himself to john q. sixpack in denver. >> he was able to do it during don vengs. we heard some incredibly compelling story. not all of them were in prime-time. some of them were in the earlier hours when fewer people were watching. but by so many accounts, he's been a caring member, a caring member of the church, a frugal person, despite all of his wealth. he's not particularly comfortable talking about himself, and it may be the case, as with the clip you just played, some of hi
. by the way, ann romney yesterday did an interview where she talked a little about mitt's, what does he when he takes the stage. as soon as he gets up on stage, he takes off his watch and he puts it on the podium and then on a piece of paper, he writes dad. she says that's amazing because he loves his dad, respects his dad, doesn't want to do anything that would not make his father proud. i love the fact that mitt does that, so he writes that word, dad. he'll do that tonight on that stage. >> brian: i remember the question he was asked, what would your father do, now that you got the nomination? he said be bold. so if he wants to take that, that's really the philosophy he should bring in tonight's. >> martha: good point. he also says he looks into the crowd to make eye contact with her and to see where she is and to sort of have a moment of connection, which i think everyone has things that sort of ground them and help them to relax and be focused and it was interesting to get a little insight into what their ritual is. we'll see how that works out tonight's. and also we've got several new p
on those experiences. [indiscernible] i think ann romney was quoted the other day about the criticism that her husband is getting. i got a lot of the males -- emails on our blog varying from good for her to "doesn't she get it?" or "imagine if michelle obama said that." it was probably not something that the campaign wanted as a structure of a statement. she was talking about her husband and talking about seeing her husband. the responses that you chose to run for office. what we demand of our candidates is a lot. even for the criticism that he is getting about not doing enough in terms of events, he is doing a tremendous number of fund-raising, having a discussion about whether we should do other things. it is incredibly hard and incredibly grueling. it is impressive that they don't make more mistakes and off-cue moments. myan't imagine watching husband go through that. my husband being very protective of me when they are critical. >> my family loves reading by criticism. why do you get so upset about it? i think that they are thinking it. i will say that ann romney is feisty. i love
from ann romney a couple weeks ago. she's just a terrific human being. i've known her for awhile. and she was semi upset or seeming upset at some of the criticisms heaped upon her husband. how difficult is it for you or for anyo other spouse in politis to sit there not only during debates and during the campaign but to sit there and listen to some of the things that are said about your husband? without jumping off the chair and saying, hey, wait a minute. >> it's part of the political process. so you have to just be ready for the criticism and you have to focus on the positive. because that's the only way you can function. campaigns are overwhelming experiences. and you know, you have to be tough. >> so would you like to see newt stay in the political arena or are you looking forward to a private life? >> well right now, it's all about ellis the elephant, but anything is possible. >> the book is "land of the pilgrims' pride." callista, thank you very much. we look forward to having you back on the program some time. maybe we'll let newt gingrich back on the show as well. next tim

[ laughter ] >> i have a lot to say. >> we talked about this yesterday on the show.
, mr. romney has had some incredible assets at his disposable, fox news, ann coulter, "the wall street journal," karl rove, bill crystal, david koch but he's blaming everyone else. is it because he's not a very good candidate or is it because his policies stink? which of the two? >> well, i'm not going to apologize publicly like krystal. she's braver than me. but it's going back to the numbers that are exposing a new reality for the part which is today, which is a record number, 40% of all americans identify as independent. that's a record number. 31% democrat, and 27% republican. and that's a shrinking number when you look at the last five years. unless you adjust and react to a shrinking number and change the rhetoric and really, you know, reach out to the fastest growing segments of minorities and women in this country that will take the president and the new president to the white house, then it's going to continue to shrink. so i think i'm going to blame the strategists that are ignoring the numbers. >> really, the strategists. krystal, i want you to take a look at romney's reacti
crisis. so all eyes on denver wednesday night. >> mitt romney did very well in nevada during the primaries, so go fixture. we will see more from you later. >>> for more front page polit politics, i'm joined by anne cornbleau and eleanor clift. let's go with you, first, eleanor, just a few days until the presidential debates, so for whom is this debate more important and why? >> romney is behind in the polls, and behind in the battle gowned states so the pressure is on governor romney to change the dynamics of the debate. he's going to help that he can think on his feet and come up with real spontaneous responses, the fact that he's too scripted has actually worked against him. the president has to turn in a work man like performance kind of like he did at the convention, nothing that's spectacular, but nothing that loses him any ground. but a lot of pressure on romney. >> same question to you, wayne, on which one has the more pressure on him factor. >> it's really both, certainly given the way the race has been going, mitt romney has been a lot to prove, this could be a big m
in afghanistan and ann curry on the syrian border. >>> good day. i'm andrea mitchell live in washington, days away from thes first presidential debate in denver where mitt romney and barack obama will be trying to reach a shrinking pool of undecided voters. joining me for our daily fix, chris cizilla. the challenges for both. everyone trying to lower expectations but the fact is, that both of these -- both of these debaters are experienced, they both had primary debates but there is a challenge first for mitt romney, he's never gone head-to-head against barack obama and for the president, he has not debated in a while. he didn't have any -- of course didn't have any primary challenges this year. >> right. andrea, i always think it's hilarious, last night in las vegas barack obama said i'm an okay debater. it's like when lou holtz was the coach of notre dame and playing east/west texas state, i don't know, they're pretty strong this year. you have to put it in some context. both of these people as you point out have risen to a point where they are the nominees for president for the parties. ne
